The Cycling Safety Panel was created in response to the 2013 coronial inquiry which investigated 13 recent cycling fatalities. The inquiry concluded that work needed to be done to investigate ways in which cycling on New Zealand roads could be made safer. As a result of the coroner’s recommendation the NZ Transport Agency established the Cycling Safety Panel, comprising 10 experts in the fields of cycling, transport and human behaviour.
The panel was tasked with developing innovative, comprehensive and practical recommendations for how central and local government can ensure on-road cycling is provided as a safe transport option.
